Travel Trivia: 5 Out-There Facts About London

Pardon us. We – like the rest of Us Weekly–reading humankind – have gotten so wrapped up in baby George‘s public debut and the Duchess’s incredible post-baby body that we’ve lost track of some of the other things that make London tick. Like these five quick and completely non-Royal facts.

Travel Trends - London

  1. Covent Garden is a spelling mistake. The area used to be the market garden for a convent.
  2. The street-style label seen most during London Fashion Week was Zara, hands down.
  3. Waterloo Bridge was built mostly by women.
  4. The Underground doesn’t always travel underground, and the Overground doesn’t always travel – you guessed it – above ground.
  5. There are more than 300 languages spoken in London – more than in any other city in the world.

Chitter Chatter

From runway jams to the FLOTUS’ style evolution, here’s what we’re buzzing about this week

BLG-1292 Chitter Chatter 2-25

Watch: Supermodel Coco Rocha bust a move for Longchamp’s SS13 campaign video. And we thought her runway strut was impressive.

Check Out: The First Lady’s style evolution. While a lot has changed (from her bangs to her brows), we think she looks perfectly presidential in both.

Hear: The top ten tracks at London Fashion Week. With these jams on our iPods, the sidewalk is our catwalk (or so we like to think).

Own: A piece of fashion history. Ten of Princess Diana’s most iconic dresses will be up for grabs at the Kerry Taylor auction house on March 19. Just be prepared to shell out some serious dough.

Going, Going, Gone Viral: Harlem Shake on the Runway

Everyone is getting on the Harlem Shake bandwagon – but we certainly didn’t expect model Cara Delevingne to bust a move backstage at London Fashion Week. While her version is definitely noteworthy, we still can’t get our minds off the UGA Swim & Dive team’s underwater version
